The NCAA is planning to interview Hawaii head coach Gib Arnold and his remaining staff members, according to a report from the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

According to the report, a representative from the NCAA Enforcement Division is arriving in Honolulu on Tuesday to talk with Arnold and assistant coaches Brandyn Akana and Benjy Taylor.

This will be the third time the NCAA has interviewed Arnold and staff in the last few months.

“They are doing some final interviews. That is my understanding,” Hawaii Athletics Director Ben Jay said to the Associated Press.

The program has been investigated since a self-reported incident in which a form was altered to admit an athlete in January. Akana was suspended for 30 days, which forced the assistant coach to miss 12 of the team’s final 14 games, but the school never gave a reason for the suspension.

Hawaii plans on fully cooperating in the investigation and it’s interesting to note that two staff members recently took jobs at the junior college level¬†earlier this offseason.

    Sounds like NCAA investigators are just looking for reasons to go to Hawaii. Tax write off.
